A Call to Be Careful with Words

May we all live this day remembering to take great thought before we speak.


Ecclesiastes 5:2 Never be rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be quick to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven, and you upon earth; therefore let your words be few.


Ecclesiastes 5:6 Do not let your mouth lead you into sin, and do not say before the messenger that it was a mistake; why should God be angry at your words, and destroy the work of your hands?


Proverbs 13:3 Those who guard their mouths preserve their lives; those who open wide their lips come to ruin.


1 Peter 3:10 Those who desire life and desire to see good days, let them keep their tongues from evil and their lips from speaking deceit; let them turn away from evil and do good; let them seek peace and pursue it.


James 1:26 If any think they are religious, and do not bridle their tongues but deceive their hearts, their religion is worthless.


Proverbs 18:20 From the fruit of the mouth one’s stomach is satisfied; the yield of the lips brings satisfaction.

Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Matthew 12:36, 37 I tell you, on the day of judgment you will have to give an account for every careless word you utter; for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.
